Bottle. Aroma is cinnamon, pumpkin, maple syrup, some malts. Solid amber ale base with the pumpkin aromas that make it a pretty good brew. But their other pumpkin ale is better in my opinion.

Medium yellow to gold with a thin white head. Strong pumpkin and apple aroma. Tastes like an autumn cider with pumpkin but not much of the autumn spices like cinnamon or nutmeg. Palate is thin and very light bodied.

Labeled KBC Pumpkin Ale. Bottle at a fall BBQ. Spicy pumpkin bread, but messy and overdone. Unpleasant.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Pours a faint orange/yellow with a thin white head. Faint smells of pumpkin, wet grass, and cinnamon. Very strong flavors of clove and cinnamon sugar on the front end that fade fast. Very little pumpkin flavor. Finishes very clean. Palate is on the thin side. Flavor is just not there on this beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear light orange with instantly disappearing head that goes completely away and leaves no lacing. Ugly beer. Aroma is subtle spices, with clove, pumpkin, and brown sugar. Not much going on here. Taste is a wheat beer with slight pumpkin spice, and a mildly unfortunate stale cardboard note that comes and goes. It’s not a drain pour, as the sweetness keeps it palatable, and if you focus on the wheat it’s not terrible. Not worth another buy - not even close.

Tap with cinnamon sugar rim at river gods in Cambridge MA. Light orange copper pour with a thin head. Because if the cinnamon sugar rim, not a lot of aroma except pumpkin. Wheat-beer like softness and body. Easy to drink with a medium body and short slight acidic finish

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Tap: Deep yellow with amber hints, decent clarity. Not much of a head, just a thin, white collar when it gets to the table. Aroma is not terrible. Heavy nutmeg and gingerbread, some cinnamon spice, and a mild, back-end tartness. Taste is a let down. Very thin, watery with a little bit of nutmeg & allspice. Possibly cinnamon. There’s a weird, slightly vegetal and metallic off flavor that kind of turns things awry. Otherwise, it might not be so bad. As is, just a mediocre pumpkin beer.

One of the best pumpkin beers I've ever tried. I'd definitely recommend this beer.

Nice orange color. Spice bill is too much. It smells like a cheap pumpkin pie. Tastes like acid with too much spice. First drain pour in a long long time.
